National Dental Hygiene Certification Board Preparatory Test
The NDHCB is pleased to introduce its two online preparatory tests. The content is confidential and is not to be copied or discussed with any other person or used for any reason other than as an online knowledge/practice test. The aim of the tests is to help candidates become familiar with the format of the questions and provide an indication of preparedness for the actual National Dental Hygiene Certification Examination (NDHCE). They are designed to simulate the format of the actual NDHCE on a smaller scale as they each contain 75 multiple-choice, single-answer questions. In addition, both tests use the same software platform that candidates will find on the NDHCE.
Completing these practice tests does not result in certification in any way. Furthermore, these instruments are for online practice purposes only. If you need to leave the prep tests at any time without finishing, simply close your browser and log back in when ready to continue. However, please note, once you click “finish” you will be unable to reenter the test.
As you view your score report at the end of a test, you will be able to compare your answers to the correct response for any question answered incorrectly. These tests can therefore be used to identify areas in which further study might be needed and should be a good indicator of your level of preparedness. However, performance on the test will not predict whether you will pass the NDHCE. Please note, all test scores and answers will remain confidential.
Thank you for your interest in national certification. We wish you the best of luck on these preparatory tests and on the National Dental Hygiene Certification Examination.
Doris Lavoie, B.Sc., MSW, CAE
